Josh has Course Guide Covered!

Published on 08/09/2015 by news_admin

Josh Atkinson from Fleetwood is about to become a familiar face – he’s the new cover star of Blackpool and The Fylde College’s School Leavers Guide for 2016.

The prospectus is hot off the shelves having recently been printed and delivered to the College – ready for distributing to 12,000 school leavers across Blackpool, Wyre, Fylde and beyond ahead of 2016 enrolment.

Marketing Manager Kristine Murray said:

“We’re opening our new Advanced Technology Centre at the Bispham Campus imminently and we were granted STEM Assured Status earlier this year for our excellent Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths provision, so we wanted to reflect this in the prospectus.

“Josh completed Level 2 and 3 apprenticeships in Mechanical Engineering with B&FC and is now helping to inspire the next generation of engineers at the Fleetwood Nautical Campus, so he was the ideal cover star for us.”

Josh, 23, studied at Cardinal Allen Catholic High School in Fleetwood before training with B&FC. He now oversees the assembly and maintenance of course apparatus at the Fleetwood Nautical Campus Fire Training Ground.

He was ready and waiting to open the first box when the delivery arrived at Blackpool and The Fylde College this week, and said:

“It’s very strange seeing myself on the cover of the prospectus. I do like it though – they [the design team] have done a good job with the pictures. Of course I’ll be taking a few copies back to work to show my colleagues!”
